ICYMI: Obama Flies Over Area Beaches (And, Unrelated, So Did A Swastika), Prankster Cheers You Up

Marine One, a Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King carrying President Obama, flew over West End Avenue apartment buildings on Friday. Also, a bird.

In Case You Missed It (ICYMI): [1] The neighborhood received a presidential flyover this week, with President Barack Obama soaring over Manhattan Beach and Brighton Beach on his way to some fundraisers Thursday. He took off from John F. Kennedy airport with three choppers – Marine One and an escort of a Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King and an Osprey. Cool fact: the Osprey attachment, pictured below and which carries Secret Service, White House staff and reporters, is ultra-lux, decked out with leather seats and other amenities. Fits right in with Brighton Beach, no? His trip home was delayed due to a suspicious package at the White House [2]. No matter what your political persuasion, seeing these in the air is pretty badass.
